Arch Linux installation instructions
To use Blender on Arch Linux, you must enable the “Community” software repository. To do this, open up a terminal window by pressing Ctrl + Alt + T or Ctrl + Shift + T on the keyboard. Then, from there, open up your Pacman configuration file in the Nano text editor.
sudo nano -w /etc/pacman.conf
Using the Down Arrow on the keyboard, locate the “Community” section of the file, and remove the # symbol from in front of “Community.” Be sure to also remove the # symbol from all lines directly below it.
Once you’ve made the edits to the Pacman configuration file in the Nano text editor, it’s time to save the edits. To save, press Ctrl + O on the keyboard, and press the Enter key. Then, close the Nano text editor by pressing Ctrl + X.
After saving edits to the Pacman configuration file, use the Arch package manager to re-sync software sources, so that “Community” is accessible.
sudo pacman -Syy
Finally, install the Blender app on your Arch Linux PC with the following command.
sudo pacman -S blender
